Graduation Ceremony

We are having an in-person Graduation on Friday, June 16th at 5pm. Each graduate will need to attend Grad Practices on Wednesday, June 14th & Thursday, June 15th from 8am-12pm. These practices are mandatory to ensure that the graduation ceremony runs smoothly. If you have any conflict, you will need to contact Mr. Lepire ahead of time. Those who don't attend, and have not been excused, will not be allowed to participate in the ceremony.

The ceremony will be live streamed, and a link will be provided closer to the event.

Tickets: All graduates will receive 2 free tickets for the ceremony, and have the option to purchase up to 8 more tickets for $10 a piece, allowing up to 10 total guests per graduate. Tickets will be available to purchase online only beginning Monday, May 1st from the NPHS Student Store, and ticket sales will end on Friday, June 2nd. No tickets will be sold after that date, so be sure to get your tickets on time.

Handicapped Seating: Seniors, if anyone in your family attending the graduation ceremony will require handicapped seating. A request form will be made available by May 1st. Continue to look out for new Senior Sources for that information.

Graduation Attire & Regalia

At NPHS each graduate is to wear a black graduation gown, cap, a 2023 tassel, and a 2023 NPHS Class Stole to the graduation ceremony. Individual students may receive specific academic recognition stoles/cords/pins for accomplishments they have made at NPHS. Those students will be recognized at the Senior Recognition Night on June 6th, and they will receive their regalia there.

Our CVUSD Board Policy states that any graduating student who has completed basic training and is an active member of any branch of the United States Armed Forces may, at the student's option, wear a military dress uniform at the ceremony (Education Code 35183.3). Any student who has officially enlisted shall be permitted to wear a recognized object provided by any branch of the United States Armed Forces.

Students shall be permitted to wear tribal regalia or recognized objects of religious or cultural significance as an adornment to the customary ceremonial attire, as long as the adornment does not cause a substantial disruption of, or material interference with, the graduation ceremony (Education Code 35183.1). “Adornment” means something attached to, or worn with, but not replacing, the cap and gown customarily worn at school graduation ceremonies. “Cultural” means recognized practices and traditions of a certain group of people.

Students are not permitted to decorate their caps, or have any other adornments without prior administrative approval. Students who desire to wear military dress or any cultural/religious adornments shall notify the school principal at least 14 days before the graduation (May 30) for approval.
